    "Wading belts? Those are for over equipped p@ssies and idiots who don't know when to stop wading" quoth me about 20 years ago. After scaring the bejeebus out of myself on a no name trout stream in Mt. (almost known as "Quaker's Drift' if God hadn't been smiling), I will never wade without one again. Seriously folks, it went from a little over the belly button to "Oh ****" with one step. I don't care if you tie on a piece of rope, use one. I like a basic boy scout belt design. They're cheap, reliable, easy to get off and will work to gather firewood or as a tourniquet if needs be. You can get a cool one at your fly shop for $25 or a basic model at Wally World for half that. Just use one. Seriously, use one.

    Yeah, I have also gotten into sandy bottom that gives way underfoot. It is a bad feeling to be sliding helplessly into a deep hole. I managed to get enough traction to back out but that was tooooo close. In the words of Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon, "I'm too old for this shi-tuff"
